2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro
Lake Guntersville - Birmingham, AL, Feb 21 - 23, 2014

Classic champ on his miracle win

Justin Lundborg ‏@JustinLundborg 

What's your biggest piece of advice for college anglers trying to make their way in the sport? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

A college fishing team is probably the best route. Try to compete as much as possible outside of your college tournaments as well to get more experience. And get to know as many people as possible. 

Justin Lundborg ‏@JustinLundborg 

Thanks for answering Randy and congratulations once again on the big win!

 

Chase Van Cappellen ‏@doofmain 

What are your favorite prespawn lures to throw? And congrats on the Classic, much deserved for a great guy! 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Thank you! Shallow crankbaits and lipless crankbaits are my favorite prespawn lures, and plastics like Senkos

Who's the biggest prankster on the Elite Series? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

I'm a big prankster myself, but Gerald Swindle and Jeff Kreit are big pranksters, too. 

Sean Frederick ‏@SFBassFishing 

@LivingstonLures has a team full of pranksters! Hahaha 

 

Brad ‏@bbonner83 

Were you bouncing that prototype off the bottom or just cranking?

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

I paralleled the rocks in 8 to 10 feet of water & tried to make contact with deepest rocks on the edge of the dropoff.

 

Dave DeHondt ‏@DaveDeHondt 

Your wife seems to be your biggest fan! How important is her influence in your career? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

She is my biggest fan and my best friend! Without her, I definitely wouldn't have won that Classic! 

Bill Marra ‏@WMWcom 

Congrats Brother. The Lord watched over you For Sure.

 

Jasper Reynolds ‏@BabyJTate 

My biggest challenge would have been the spectators. How were they and what advice do you have for future spectators?

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

They were awesome in my area but you have to communicate with people, and that's the biggest key. No one was there to bother us; they just wanted to see. Spectators should bring binoculars to watch from afar! 

Jasper Reynolds ‏@BabyJTate 

You're a class act, my friend. Congrats!

 

Tom Greenwood III ‏@mrducks99 

Did you save the last day spot or had you fished the previous two days?

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

I had fished that area all three days. But, the first two days without success. Except for the last 15 minutes of Day 2, I stopped there. I had no idea how good it would be Day 3. 

Tom Greenwood III ‏@mrducks99 

You ripped it! Congrats and good luck this year!

 

Justin Collar ‏@collar_justin 

Biggest spotted bass?? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

6 1/2 pounds on Alabama's Logan Martin Lake

 

Brandon Howard™ ‏@OReOs_No_MiLk 

Ever fished Pickwick or Wilson in Alabama? Did you enjoy them if so? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

I love both! I've fished them in Bassmaster tourneys & I'd like to go back again. I came in 2nd in one on Pickwick 

Brandon Howard™ ‏@OReOs_No_MiLk 

Well come on! I’d be glad to go with you sometime! I know a few places!! 

 

Taylor Burtram ‏@tburtram 

What's your favorite bed fishing bait and color? And what's your favorite bait to catch pre spawners? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Yamamoto flappin-hawg in bama bug color.
